Extensive abuse of vulnerable women

is still going unrecognised

0:00:070:00:11

across the UK, and needs

to be urgently addressed.

0:00:110:00:19

A serious case review

following the sexual exploitation

0:00:190:00:21

of women in Newcastle warns

that the scale of the problem

0:00:210:00:23

still isn't acknowledged.

0:00:230:00:24

It continues, it carries on,

I would suggest, in most towns

0:00:240:00:28

and cities in the UK.

0:00:280:00:29

We'll have the latest

on the warnings from Newcastle.

0:00:290:00:32

Also this lunchtime...

0:00:320:00:34

Mistakes in prescribing

or administering drugs in the NHS

0:00:340:00:39

could cause 1700 deaths a year

in England, according

0:00:390:00:41

to a Government report.

0:00:410:00:44

The Florida school shooting -

an armed policeman on campus

0:00:440:00:51

has resigned, after it

emerged he didn't intervene

0:00:510:00:53

on the day 17 people died.

0:00:530:00:55

Royal Bank of Scotland,

largely owned by the taxpayer,

0:00:550:00:57

records its first annual profit

in a decade.

0:00:570:01:05

And crunch time in the curling

at the Winter Olympics -

0:01:060:01:08

Team GB's women are in action

in the semi-final against Sweden

0:01:080:01:13

Also in sport on BBC News, another

Olympic athlete from Russia failed a

0:01:130:01:18

drugs test but they do have a first

gold of the games in the figure

0:01:180:01:21

skating.

0:01:210:01:30

Good afternoon and welcome

to the BBC News at One.

0:01:390:01:45

There's a warning that

vulnerable young women

0:01:450:01:47

are being abused across the UK -

and that the extent of the crimes

0:01:470:01:51

isn't yet recognised.

0:01:510:01:52

A serious case review has

been published following

0:01:520:01:54

Operation Sanctuary,

which saw 18 people convicted

0:01:540:01:56

for exploiting girls in Newcastle

over a three-year period.

0:01:560:02:04

While today's report says police

and the council dealt

0:02:050:02:08

with that situation well,

it's calling on the Government

0:02:080:02:10

to address the issue

of adult vulnerability

0:02:100:02:12

as a matter of urgency.

0:02:120:02:13

Our correspondent Fiona

Trott is in Newcastle.

0:02:130:02:20

Today the victims of that sexual

exploitation in Newcastle received

0:02:200:02:24

an apology. The expert involved in

the review thanked them for coming

0:02:240:02:29

forward and said they were

profoundly sorry for what the girls

0:02:290:02:33

and women had suffered, and the fact

that women were involved in that

0:02:330:02:36

abuse has raised a new concern to

date. The report authors say the

0:02:360:02:41

extensive abuse of adults will be

happening across the UK but it is

0:02:410:02:46

going unnoticed. It is one of the

key issues raised as part of

0:02:460:02:50

Operation Sanctuary.

0:02:500:02:54

A city coming to terms with

Sanctuary. The investigation may be

0:02:540:02:58

over but the report says sexual

exploitation still exists, and the

0:02:580:03:01

police know it. It is white takeaway

staff across this city are being

0:03:010:03:06

trained on how to spot potential

victims. Today, a warning to all

0:03:060:03:11

towns and cities across the UK, the

safeguarding of vulnerable adults

0:03:110:03:15

needs to be addressed as a matter of

urgency.

It was a specific feature

0:03:150:03:20

of the Newcastle experience that it

was not just children who were

0:03:200:03:25

victims of sexual exploitation. What

I would like the Government to do is

0:03:250:03:29

have a really good look at the

learning that is now available about

0:03:290:03:33

abuse of adults with

vulnerabilities.

On the streets,

0:03:330:03:38

victims were groomed by men mostly

from Pakistani, Indian and

0:03:380:03:42

Bangladeshi backgrounds. They were

given so many drugs and alcohol they

0:03:420:03:45

could not defend themselves against

sexual abuse. Their experiences are

0:03:450:03:49

included in the report.

I started

seeing younger girls there being

0:03:490:03:54

raped. Schoolgirls in uniform with

their schoolbags coming from school.

0:03:540:03:59

I went constantly for the morning

after pill, to different places.

0:03:590:04:04

Vanessa, not her real name, was a

victim of sexual exploitation. To

0:04:040:04:09

protect her identity we have used an

actor's boys.

I will see girls

0:04:090:04:13

begging on the street and a normal

man wearing a suit approaches them

0:04:130:04:17

for sex. I see that all the time.

The report says sexual exploitation

0:04:170:04:23

still exists, charities on the

ground tell us 14-year-old girls are

0:04:230:04:26

still being picked up by men in

cars.

Are you doing enough? We stop

0:04:260:04:31

it with the assistance of the public

so the first question to the people

0:04:310:04:35

who have seen that, did they

reported to the police? Did they

0:04:350:04:39

take the registration, get details

of the people? I would like to think

0:04:390:04:42

they are reporting it to us. It

would be naive and wrong for me to

0:04:420:04:49

suggest that because of Sanctuary,

and at the point the report is

0:04:490:04:52

published, that this is dropped and

that we have solved the problem. We

0:04:520:04:58

haven't. It continues, it carries

on, I would suggest, in most if not

0:04:580:05:02

all towns and cities in the UK.

And

that is why today's report said all

0:05:020:05:08

towns and cities should

automatically assume sexual

0:05:080:05:11

exploitation is happening on their

doorstep. Only then can it be

0:05:110:05:14

tackled properly.

0:05:140:05:18

The report is also recommending

today that research is carried out

0:05:180:05:22

into perpetrators' backgrounds,

their cultural backgrounds, because

0:05:220:05:25

the report author, David Spicer,

went to visit one of the

0:05:250:05:30

perpetrators in prison and spoke

about a lack of morals in British

0:05:300:05:33

girls. A Government spokesman has

said it will now look carefully at

0:05:330:05:38

the recommendations of today's

report.

0:05:380:05:41

Fiona Trott, thank you.

0:05:410:05:43

Mistakes when patients

are prescribed or administered drugs

0:05:430:05:47

could be the cause of 1700 deaths

a year in England,

0:05:470:05:50

and contribute to thousands more.

0:05:500:05:52

A report commissioned by ministers

says GPs, pharmacists,

0:05:520:05:53

hospitals and care homes could be

making millions of errors a year.

0:05:530:05:59

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt

says the system around medciation

0:05:590:06:02

has to be modernised,

but he's acknowledged that staffing

0:06:020:06:04

pressures are also a factor.

0:06:040:06:08

Here's our health editor, Hugh Pym.

0:06:080:06:10

The report covers mistakes

made in the prescribing,

0:06:100:06:13

dispensing and administering

of medication in England.

0:06:130:06:16

These could involve

GPs, pharmacists, care

0:06:160:06:18

homes and hospitals.

0:06:180:06:20

The research is said to be one

of the first exercises of its kind.

0:06:200:06:25

It found that medication errors

could cause around 1700 deaths

0:06:250:06:32

a year, and perhaps contribute to up

to 22,000 deaths.

0:06:320:06:35

The cost to the NHS could be around

£1.6 billion a year.

0:06:350:06:38

It does note that the vast majority

of prescriptions dispensed

0:06:380:06:41

in the NHS are safe,

and mistakes do occur

0:06:410:06:45

in all health care systems.

0:06:450:06:46

Shirley was admitted to hospital

last week with pneumonia.

0:06:460:06:54

While she was there she was

mistakenly given double the dose

0:06:540:06:57

of her regular epilepsy medication.

0:06:570:06:58

It was only spotted by her husband

after her condition got worse.

0:06:580:07:01

She was hallucinating,

she didn't know where she was.

0:07:010:07:03

I mean, she doesn't remember

what happened now, even today she's

0:07:030:07:06

still not clear on what happened,

her memory's still coming back

0:07:060:07:08

and she's still very

modelled from it all.

0:07:080:07:16

-- muddled from it all.

0:07:220:07:23

And I think it really

upset my grandad as well to see,

0:07:230:07:26

it was quite scary.

0:07:260:07:27

The Health and Social Care

Secretary, Jeremy Hunt,

0:07:270:07:29

said it was a far bigger problem

globally than had so far been

0:07:290:07:32

recognised, causing appalling

levels of harm and death.

0:07:320:07:34

This is not about blaming doctors,

nurses, pharmacists who work under

0:07:340:07:37

a huge amount of pressure,

but it's about putting checks

0:07:370:07:39

and balances in place

with e-prescribing systems

0:07:390:07:41

and making sure the culture is right

so that if someone does make

0:07:410:07:45

a mistake they're not criminalised

for it, but we can actually

0:07:450:07:48

learn from that mistake

and stop it being repeated.

0:07:480:07:50

Health unions said it was right

to try to reduce mistakes,

0:07:500:07:53

but said understaffing and pressure

of work was the real problem.

0:07:530:07:57

One of our real concerns is that

when we've got a time,

0:07:570:08:00

which we have at the moment,

when there's not enough staff,

0:08:000:08:02

that people are working not always

in the area that they're most

0:08:020:08:05

experienced, not with the same

people every day, not always

0:08:050:08:07

knowing the patients -

that is fraught with danger

0:08:070:08:10

in terms of safety.

0:08:100:08:12

The best thing is to have the right

knowledge, the right skills,

0:08:120:08:15

the right number of people

knowing your patient and actually

0:08:150:08:17

knowing what you're doing.

0:08:170:08:21

The National Pharmacy Association

said it welcomed the focus

0:08:210:08:23

on reducing medication errors,

but stressed that a culture

0:08:230:08:26

of learning rather

than blame was needed.

0:08:260:08:29

Hugh Pym, BBC News.

0:08:290:08:34

European Union leaders

are meeting in Brussels,

0:08:340:08:36

without Theresa May,

to discuss the EU's

0:08:360:08:37

future after Brexit.

0:08:370:08:44

Here, senior Cabinet ministers say

there was 'outbreak of unity'

0:08:440:08:47

at yesterday's crucial meeting

to discuss the UK's next steps.

0:08:470:08:49

The Prime Minister will give more

details in a speech next week.

0:08:490:08:52

Our Europe correspondent

Damian Grammaticas is at the EU

0:08:520:08:54

summit in Brussels.

0:08:540:09:00

Yes, it has been a busy day already

here so far for EU leaders. They

0:09:000:09:05

have had one meeting already this

morning with North African

0:09:050:09:07

countries, then they came across the

road and are now in discussions

0:09:070:09:11

about some of those issues the EU

will face after the UK leads, but of

0:09:110:09:15

course they are all waiting to hear

the outcome of those deliberations

0:09:150:09:18

at Chequers last night. The

president of the commission,

0:09:180:09:24

Jean-Claude Juncker, said to me he

would not comment until he has seen

0:09:240:09:27

the detail of what the UK has

agreed.

0:09:270:09:30

In Brussels, a busy day of summits,

a crush of presidents and prime

0:09:300:09:35

ministers in town. An unusual sight,

the EU's top leaders walking from

0:09:350:09:41

one meeting to the next, but no UK

leader. The day after Theresa May

0:09:410:09:46

and her cabinet thrashed out that

approach to future ties, the EU

0:09:460:09:50

leaders are still waiting to hear

what the UK wants. But with this

0:09:500:09:54

warning...

It is not possible to be

aligned to the European Union when

0:09:540:09:58

it suits and not when it doesn't,

that is not possible. So I think the

0:09:580:10:03

United Kingdom really needs to

square that circle and it doesn't

0:10:030:10:06

appear to me that circle has yet

been squared but hopefully when the

0:10:060:10:09

Prime Minister speaks next week the

United Kingdom will be more clear

0:10:090:10:15

about what it wants in terms of the

new relationship, and will back that

0:10:150:10:18

up with real detail.

At today's

meeting the EU's 27 leaders are

0:10:180:10:24

starting to tackle some of the

tricky issues the UK's exit from the

0:10:240:10:29

union creates. The most contentious,

the hole left in the EU budget. At

0:10:290:10:34

least 10 billion new rosy year,

roughly 10% of current spending. So

0:10:340:10:38

the dilemma, will some countries pay

more or will some receive less? And

0:10:380:10:46

what to do about the UK's seats in

the European Parliament? 73 UK MEPs

0:10:530:10:56

will go, seats will be cut and some

we distributed to other countries.

0:10:560:10:59

But it is the money that will

provoke the biggest arguments. Some

0:10:590:11:01

don't want to see their payments go

up, Denmark is one.

0:11:010:11:04

Is your country prepared to pay more

after Brexit?

Know, if I should keep

0:11:040:11:06

my answer short I should say no.

Britain leaving the EU will not make

0:11:060:11:09

any of us staying richer so I think

we should stay to the idea of

0:11:090:11:14

putting a limit or cap on our

budget.

Others, like Romania, don't

0:11:140:11:18

want to see what they receive go

down.

0:11:180:11:20

There was a hole in the budget,

issue country prepared to accept

0:11:200:11:24

less and see cuts to spending?

You

know, if you listen to politicians

0:11:240:11:30

there is usually a hole in the

budget but finally things are

0:11:300:11:34

financed so if we want to finance

more, we have to pay more, it is

0:11:340:11:39

very simple. So this is just the

start of the arguments Brexit could

0:11:390:11:42

trigger among EU countries.

The

difficulties among themselves don't

0:11:420:11:47

for now mean any divisions in their

approach to negotiating with the UK.

0:11:470:11:53

And of course the EU countries are

keen to hear the outcome of the

0:11:530:11:58

Cabinet deliberations because those

will have a very important impact on

0:11:580:12:02

the discussions, the negotiations,

going forward. But if the

0:12:020:12:05

indications from what we are hearing

about what the Cabinet may have

0:12:050:12:09

agreed right, that the UK wants a

trade deal and are negotiating

0:12:090:12:12

better access on top of that, well,

the EU has already been very cold

0:12:120:12:17

about that idea, so that could be

something that is difficult to

0:12:170:12:21

achieve. It leaves open the

0:12:210:12:32

achieve. It leaves open the question

of what would happen in Ireland and

0:12:330:12:34

to the border there, that is still

unresolved as well, and unclear.

0:12:340:12:36

Very interesting, thank you, Damien

grammatical is in Brussels.

0:12:360:12:38

Let's talk about that with our

political correspondent, Iain

0:12:380:12:40

Watson. What is this sense of what

the Cabinet is thinking and saying?

0:12:400:12:43

And interesting juncture in all of

this? In a sense we are a week or

0:12:430:12:48

two early because this time next

week the Prime Minister will be

0:12:480:12:51

setting out her vision for our

future relationship with the

0:12:510:12:54

European Union, her big speech, but

as I understand it what emerged from

0:12:540:12:58

Chequers yesterday from eight hours

of discussions that the Cabinet's

0:12:580:13:02

subcommittee on Brexit decided by

and large have signed up

0:13:020:13:10

and large have signed up to a

recognition. What does that mean? It

0:13:140:13:15

means a swathe of areas, proposals

for the Government where we draw our

0:13:150:13:18

own rules and regulations after

Brexit and because they will be at

0:13:180:13:20

the same level or higher than the EU

then the Government believes trade

0:13:200:13:23

could continue unimpeded. As we

heard, though, from Damien, the EU

0:13:230:13:26

may take a different view when the

negotiations get under way. Another

0:13:260:13:29

potential spanner that might be put

in the Prime Minister's works

0:13:290:13:33

because to have a new customs

arrangement, for example, that would

0:13:330:13:37

affect the Irish border, she needs

to get her legislation through

0:13:370:13:41

Parliament and some people in her

own ranks, some Tory rebels, are

0:13:410:13:45

trying to

0:13:450:13:55

change that legislation to commit

the Government to staying in a

0:14:030:14:06

customs union with the EU, something

Theresa May does not want to do.

0:14:060:14:08

Meanwhile, Labour seem to be

changing their position, more

0:14:080:14:10

sympathetic to staying in a customs

union long-term. They could side

0:14:100:14:12

with those Tory rebels in the weeks

ahead and potentially inflict defeat

0:14:120:14:14

on the Government. Thank you, for

now, Iain Watson, at Westminster.

0:14:140:14:17

An armed policeman in Florida has

resigned from his job after a video

0:14:170:14:21

showed him standing outside

the school where 17 people were shot

0:14:210:14:23

dead by a former pupil last week.

0:14:230:14:25

Scott Peterson arrived 90 seconds

after the attack began -

0:14:250:14:27

but didn't go inside immediately

to confront the gunman.

0:14:270:14:29

Charlotte Gallagher reports.

0:14:290:14:32

There was chaos as pupils ran

to escape a gunman indiscriminately

0:14:320:14:35

shooting teachers and students

with an assault rifle.

0:14:350:14:38

The school's football coach,

who was shot dead, has been hailed

0:14:380:14:41

a hero for throwing himself in front

of a child to protect them.

0:14:410:14:44

Now it's emerged that an armed

police officer was at the high

0:14:440:14:47

school but stood outside

as the shooting took place.

0:14:470:14:55

Deputy Scot Peterson has resigned

after being suspended.

0:14:560:14:58

The area's sheriff said

Peterson should have acted.

0:14:580:15:02

Scot Peterson was absolutely

on-campus through this entire event.

0:15:020:15:04

He was armed, he was in uniform.

0:15:040:15:10

But what I saw was a deputy arrive

at the west side of building 12,

0:15:100:15:14

take up a position,

0:15:140:15:20

and he never went in.

0:15:200:15:28

As the funerals take place of the 17

victims of the shootings,

0:15:290:15:32

a fierce debate is raging about how

to stop another school massacre.

0:15:320:15:39

President Trump has

suggested arming teachers.

0:15:390:15:45

I think a concealed permit

for having teachers,

0:15:450:15:47

and letting people know

that there are people

0:15:470:15:49

in the building with a gun,

you won't have, in my opinion,

0:15:490:15:52

you won't have these shootings,

because these people are cowards.

0:15:520:15:57

His suggestion has been

condemned by many teachers,

0:15:570:16:00

who say the only way to stop

shootings in schools is to have

0:16:000:16:03

fewer guns, not more.

0:16:030:16:04

0:16:040:16:08

A fourth British tourist has died

as a result of the helicopter crash

0:16:080:16:12

in the Grand Canyon nearly

a fortnight ago.

0:16:120:16:13

Jonathan Udall, who was in his 30s

and from Brighton, was on honeymoon.

0:16:130:16:17

His wife, Ellie Milward remains

in a critical condition in hospital,

0:16:170:16:19

along with another British woman

and the helicopter pilot.

0:16:190:16:27

Royal Bank of Scotland,

0:16:320:16:36

which is majority-owned

by taxpayers,

0:16:360:16:41

has recorded an annual profit

for the first time in a decade.

0:16:410:16:47

The bank made £752 million in 2017,

compared with a loss

0:16:470:16:49

of almost 7 billion the year before.

0:16:490:16:51

The bank's Chief Executive says it's

a really symbolic moment.

0:16:510:16:53

Our economics editor

Kamal Ahmed is with me.

0:16:530:16:55

Sounds positive, what do we read

into this? It is symbolic and good

0:16:550:16:58

that a bank we have a stake in has

made a profit for the first time in

0:16:580:17:02

ten years, this was a big global

whiskey bank.

0:17:020:17:05

But it has trained up its act to an

extent and sold a lot of foreign

0:17:050:17:11

businesses, now mostly focused on

the UK and Republic of Ireland, now

0:17:110:17:16

still there are big risks. Facing

fines in America for involvement in

0:17:160:17:22

the mortgage crisis, money to pay to

compensate small businesses here,

0:17:220:17:26

and the big question is, when will

the taxpayer get our money back, for

0:17:260:17:31

all of that money that we put into

the bank when it nearly went bust in

0:17:310:17:35

2008. A little bit earlier today I

spoke with the Chief Executive Ross

0:17:350:17:43

McKinnon

0:17:430:17:43

and put that question straight to

him. Yes they have put in 45 billion

0:17:430:17:46

but we are going to put in as much

so that we can get as much back for

0:17:460:17:51

the taxpayer as we possibly can.

This bank is a really good bang for

0:17:510:17:54

the UK, and how much money the

government gets back will depend

0:17:540:18:00

upon the market at the time.

It

could be years and years?

It could

0:18:000:18:04

be, and when you are selling 70% of

a business, it will take a number of

0:18:040:18:09

years to come through.

-- Ross

McEwan.

The government itself has

0:18:090:18:11

said they want to start that process

in the fiscal year 2018/19, it will

0:18:110:18:17

take three to five years for them to

get down to a much smaller

0:18:170:18:20

percentage.

0:18:200:18:26

percentage.

So, better news today,

still lots of risks, and a long time

0:18:260:18:29

until we get our money back.

0:18:290:18:33

Our top story this lunchtime.

0:18:340:18:39

A report warns extensive abuse of

vulnerable women is still going

0:18:390:18:41

unrecognised across the UK - and

needs to be urgently addressed.

0:18:410:18:46

Still to come: a new warning about

tooth erosion, experts say it is not

0:18:460:18:51

just what we eat but how and when we

eat.

0:18:510:18:56

In sport, the draw has been made for

the last 16 of the Europa League,

0:18:570:19:01

the Arsenal have a difficult tie,

taking on Italian giants AC Milan.

0:19:010:19:13

The UN Security Council

will consider calls later today

0:19:150:19:17

for a nationwide ceasefire in Syria

0:19:170:19:19

to allow for badly needed

humanitarian aid deliveries.

0:19:190:19:21

There were more air strikes this

morning targeting the rebel held

0:19:210:19:23

area of eastern Ghouta,

near Damascus,

0:19:230:19:25

which has been under

heavy bombardment since Sunday.

0:19:250:19:27

More than 400 people are reported

to have been killed.

0:19:270:19:29

Martin Patience reports.

0:19:290:19:37

There are some disturbing images in

this report, from neighbouring

0:19:420:19:44

Lebanon.

0:19:440:19:47

Another frantic search for

survivors. An air strike has just

0:19:470:19:51

hit.

0:19:510:19:53

SHOUTING

A child is brought out of the

0:19:550:20:00

burning building. But a woman is

trapped inside. They are struggling

0:20:000:20:08

to find her. Come down, come down,

they are shouting... They find her.

0:20:080:20:17

In another home, another rescue. But

for the dead, there is no peace

0:20:190:20:28

here. EXPLOSIONS

0:20:280:20:29

Even those burying a victim are

running for cover.

0:20:350:20:44

More than a million Syrians have

fled over the mountains, into

0:20:440:20:47

neighbouring Lebanon. We spoke to

one couple from Eastern Ghouta. He

0:20:470:20:55

and his wife did not want their

faces shown, fearing reprisals from

0:20:550:20:59

the Syrian government.

0:20:590:21:04

TRANSLATION:

I last spoke to my

cousin three days ago, it was

0:21:040:21:08

terrible, he told me that they were

waiting to die. He asked me to for

0:21:080:21:14

give him, if I never heard from him

again. His little boy was killed, he

0:21:140:21:18

was just three and a half. I have

not heard from my cousin since.

He

0:21:180:21:26

plays me the last message he got

from his cousin.

0:21:260:21:29

They are destroying Ghouta, he says.

Please pray for us.

The value of the company that runs

the Snapchat messaging app,

0:21:460:21:54

has fallen by a

billion

pounds

0:21:540:21:55

after the reality TV star

Kylie Jenner tweeted

0:21:550:21:57

that she doesn't use it anymore.

0:21:570:21:59

The app had a controversial

redesign last year.

0:21:590:22:02

Our Technology Correspondent

Rory

Cellan-Jones

is here.

0:22:020:22:06

Remarkable what one comment can

apparently do!

The power of

0:22:060:22:11

celebrity, on all sorts of social

media services. Kylie Jenner, very

0:22:110:22:15

well-known reality star, as a huge

following on Snapchat and has 24

0:22:150:22:22

million Twitter followers, 20 people

saw her tweet. But have a look at

0:22:220:22:25

it:

0:22:250:22:26

what a bombshell, because she was

one of its biggest supporters, it

0:22:310:22:37

has had this redesign. The shares

fell about 6% after them. You can

0:22:370:22:42

never actually link an event to a

share price movement in that way, it

0:22:420:22:48

did seem significant, but let's face

it, Snapchat shares are extremely

0:22:480:22:52

volatile, this is the company that

could grow to be huge, as big as

0:22:520:22:57

Facebook, by some reckoning, but

could evaporate within months,

0:22:570:23:01

according to others. Shares rose

earlier this month by 50% in one day

0:23:010:23:06

because it had some good figures

out. Now it is under pressure

0:23:060:23:10

because people are worrying about

the redesign which has not been

0:23:100:23:12

popular with a lot of users. There

has been a petition about it, a

0:23:120:23:17

million users have signed it. We can

expect shares to go up and down as

0:23:170:23:22

people change their mind every 15

minutes about whether or not it is

0:23:220:23:24

the future(!)

0:23:240:23:27

Sipping hot fruit teas and snacking

in between meals can

0:23:290:23:32

increase your chances

of tooth erosion.

0:23:320:23:33

That's according to scientists

at King's College London,

0:23:330:23:35

who say it's not just what we eat

0:23:350:23:37

but how and when we eat that

affects our dental health.

0:23:370:23:40

Catherine Burns reports.

0:23:400:23:44

just going to have a probe around

the gums.

Back in the dentist chair,

0:23:440:23:48

even though she thought she looked

after her teeth well, she has tooth

0:23:480:23:56

erosion, Rachel had a bad habit she

did not even know about.

The way I

0:23:560:24:02

drink normally, especially if it is

flavoured, I drink it and hold it in

0:24:020:24:06

my mouth longer than the average

person I suppose, perhaps the taste,

0:24:060:24:10

something like that. Again, that

more exposure to my teeth, in my

0:24:100:24:15

mouth longer than just swallowing it

down.

As vices ago it does not sound

0:24:150:24:21

so terrible but researchers say that

it is bad news for your teeth.

We

0:24:210:24:25

found that one in six people had

habits like sipping things really

0:24:250:24:29

slowly or sipping them around their

mouth, rinsing it around your mouth.

0:24:290:24:33

If you do this on a daily basis for

years and years you can cause

0:24:330:24:37

serious damage to your teeth and

that serious damage can mean that

0:24:370:24:41

your whole mouth needs to be

rebuilt!

Treatment takes an average

0:24:410:24:45

of more than 20 months, at a cost of

£4500 on the NHS and almost £14,000

0:24:450:24:52

privately. It is preventable, mostly

by cutting back on acidic food and

0:24:520:24:59

drink, some things, like fruit, are

generally seen as the healthy option

0:24:590:25:03

but from a dental point of view they

can erode teeth. This report

0:25:030:25:07

mentioned adding lemon or lime to

your water, sugar free soft drinks,

0:25:070:25:12

ranking fruit teas and snacking on

fruit... Take these grapes, for

0:25:120:25:16

example, if you eat ten or 20 of

them in one sitting, that would be

0:25:160:25:20

one acid attack on your teeth, if

you eat the same amount over a

0:25:200:25:24

longer period of time, it would be a

sustained attack. Should people

0:25:240:25:30

scrap their five a day to protect

their teeth, is a resurgence say

0:25:300:25:33

that is the last thing they want.

The advice is to be aware of overall

0:25:330:25:38

eating patterns and to consider

snacks that are less acidic and high

0:25:380:25:42

in calcium.

0:25:420:25:49

A fresh doping case has overshadowed

the first gold medal for the Olympic

0:25:490:25:53

athletes from Russia at the Winter

Olympic Games in South Korea.

0:25:530:25:55

Elsewhere at the games Team GB's

women's curlers are in semi-final

0:25:550:25:57

action against Sweden,

victory will guarantee them

0:25:570:25:59

at least a silver medal.

0:25:590:26:00

But it seems that they are

struggling... !

0:26:000:26:03

David Ornstein is in Pyeongchang.

0:26:030:26:07

It does seem tense in the semifinal,

Britain up against it but going

0:26:070:26:11

to the wire, meanwhile, the day will

be remembered for the achievements

0:26:110:26:17

of a teenage female figure skater.

Is 15 years of age, the new star of

0:26:170:26:25

figure skating, dancing for a place

in sporting legend, the young

0:26:250:26:31

pretender, as they have called her,

Alina Zagitova, unbeaten in her

0:26:310:26:34

debut season, she now faces the

biggest test of all, leaving

0:26:340:26:39

competitors in a spin to stand on

the verge of greatness. Only one

0:26:390:26:44

skater could deny her, her

compatriot, training partner and

0:26:440:26:48

archrival, Evgenia Medvedeva, the

two-time reigning world champion

0:26:480:26:52

looked set for glory, but the judges

decided otherwise.

COMMENTATOR:

0:26:520:26:57

Heartbreak for Evgenia Medvedeva who

thought she had done enough.

Alina

0:26:570:27:03

Zagitova could rejoice, second

youngest figure skating champion in

0:27:030:27:07

Olympic history.

CHEERING

0:27:070:27:08

Rigged the first gold medal of these

games for an athlete from Russia,

0:27:110:27:15

competing here as neutrals after the

country was found guilty of

0:27:150:27:18

state-sponsored doping, there are

national anthem and flag replaced by

0:27:180:27:23

Olympic equivalents.

For Britain,

the besieged of a record fifth medal

0:27:230:27:31

resumed in the curling arena,

traditionally a happy hunting

0:27:310:27:35

ground. Even your head, her team and

their supporters looking to at least

0:27:350:27:40

emulate the bronze medal won in the

Saatchi games four years ago but a

0:27:400:27:44

semifinal against Sweden beat them

in the groups would not be

0:27:440:27:48

straightforward and the

Scandinavians made the better start.

0:27:480:27:51

COMMENTATOR: That is out.

Curling

often comes down to the smallest

0:27:510:27:55

COMMENTATOR: That is out.

Curling

often comes down to the smallest of

0:27:550:27:55

margins, soon, a moment of Muirhead

brilliance, Britain were level,

0:27:550:28:00

three apiece at the half level.

Well

done, even Muirhead! However, Sweden

0:28:000:28:07

regained momentum and raced into a

convincing lead, 8-3 up with three

0:28:070:28:12

ends to go.

British hopes resting on

thin ice.

0:28:120:28:15

ends to go.

British hopes resting on

thin ice.

0:28:150:28:16

In the last couple of minutes,

Britain's women have gone out, they

0:28:170:28:22

can still win a bronze medal and

that would make this most successful

0:28:220:28:25

ever Winter Olympics for the nation.

The IOC International Olympic

0:28:250:28:28

Committee have confirmed they have

received notification of a positive

0:28:280:28:34

drugs test for a Russian bobsleigh

athlete, and if proven, that will be

0:28:340:28:37

the second Russian to have tested

positive at these games, it has put

0:28:370:28:42

a cloud over the possible

reintegration, the lifting of the

0:28:420:28:46

ban, ahead of the closing ceremony

on Sunday.

0:28:460:28:51

Residents of care homes regularly

enjoy special events - everything

0:29:020:29:04

from art lessons to magicians. But a

home in Dorset has tried something

0:29:040:29:07

rather different - when pole dancers

staged a display. Some people have

0:29:070:29:09

criticised the decision: but the

care home owners say the dancers

0:29:090:29:11

could be back. Here's Duncan

Kennedy.

0:29:110:29:15

It is a long way from Sidoti, but

residents at this care home asked

0:29:150:29:24

for more modern entertainment and

this is what they got, and by all

0:29:240:29:29

accounts, they thoroughly enjoyed

it! -- sudoku. But the pole dancer

0:29:290:29:32

has sent some local councillors into

a spin, with one councillor saying

0:29:320:29:39

it is completely inappropriate.

Eyebrows raised, what did you make

0:29:390:29:42

of that? It wasn't unexpected!

Eleanor is the co-founder of the

0:29:420:29:47

company that provided the pole

dancers. A supple, seasons dancer

0:29:470:29:52

herself, she says, come on, it is

2018.

Yes, it is used to titillate,

0:29:520:29:59

all of this, that is OK, that is

fine, that it is more than just

0:29:590:30:03

that, it has gone beyond that now,

it is taking on its own life form,

0:30:030:30:08

just because it has a foundation

does not mean it has to stop there.

0:30:080:30:11

That open attitude is shared by the

care home itself, hearing Christ

0:30:110:30:16

Church, in a statement they have

said that all the pole dancers were

0:30:160:30:19

wearing gym kit and the residents,

some of whom have dementia, were

0:30:190:30:23

given the option of attending the

session. It said both residents and

0:30:230:30:27

relatives are happy with what

happened. The home also says pole

0:30:270:30:32

dancing could become an Olympic

sport. But do others think it is

0:30:320:30:36

right for elderly residents?

I think

it is quite a good idea, why not, I

0:30:360:30:41

have worked in old people's homes,

and I think they should do what they

0:30:410:30:46

want, really! Why not, enjoy

themselves while they can!

You might

0:30:460:30:51

think, why didn't they opt for a

different type of dance, but there

0:30:510:30:55

is a stigma over Paul Downton, is it

good or bad. Your view? Undecided!

0:30:550:31:01

-- there is a stigma over pole

dancing.

This may have produced an

0:31:010:31:06

outpouring of reaction in some

parts, but the care home says it is

0:31:060:31:12

now up for inviting the Pole

0:31:120:31:17

dancers back.

0:31:170:31:22

Time for the weather forecast.

Sunshine we will keep through the

0:31:230:31:28

weekend, on the strength of the

wind, bitterly cold, as we go into

0:31:280:31:31

next week, things turn colder.

0:31:310:31:36

Increasing chance that some of us

could see snow, but back to the here

0:31:360:31:40

and now, whether into the next week

is dominated by this area of high

0:31:400:31:43

pressure over Scandinavia, feeding

in the cold air all the way from the

0:31:430:31:47

Arctic, honest lengthening east

south-easterly wind, pushing in more

0:31:470:31:51

clout across parts of North

Easington, Southern clout across

0:31:510:31:54

south-west England and Northern

Ireland, elsewhere, good deal of

0:31:540:31:59

sunshine. The thermometer may read

four to seven Celsius, it will feel

0:31:590:32:02

colder than that. The wind will

continue to push in more clout

0:32:020:32:07

across parts of north-east England

and Anglia overnight, not quite as

0:32:070:32:10

cold as it was, lire skies elsewhere

and these blue colours show how low

0:32:100:32:15

temperatures will get, -2, -3, a few

cold spots perhaps down to minus

0:32:150:32:21

five. Cold frosty start to the day

tomorrow, good deal of sunshine for

0:32:210:32:29

much of the country. Some

exceptions, Northern Ireland, seeing

0:32:290:32:33

clout, eastern parts of Scotland,

again, given the strength of the

0:32:330:32:36

win, although the thermometer me

read four to seven Celsius, it will

0:32:360:32:40

feel colder. Tomorrow evening and

night, another cold one, mainly

0:32:400:32:44

clear skies. More clout feeding into

eastern parts of Scotland and

0:32:440:32:49

northern England. -- cloud.

Temperatures down to -2, minus

0:32:490:32:55

three. We do it all again on Sunday,

a cold, frosty start but for many, a

0:32:550:33:02

good deal of sunshine, more in the

way of sunshine for Northern Ireland

0:33:020:33:05

and south-east England. A chance of

wintry flurries for northern parts

0:33:050:33:12

of Scotland and England. -- eastern

parts of Scotland. Brisk and gusty

0:33:120:33:18

easterly wind, coming, in places it

will feel like -2 or three degrees,

0:33:180:33:23

had eagerly across parts of East

Anglia. -- -2 or minus three

0:33:230:33:27

degrees. Staying in the cold air,

still feeding in the cold east or

0:33:270:33:32

north-easterly. In that set up,

increasing chance that we could see

0:33:320:33:35

some snow next week. --
